After quickly putting away Leslie Smith in her UFC debut this past May, Cris “Cyborg” Justino has her next Octagon appearance booked.

Recently the UFC confirmed that as expected, the Invicta FC featherweight champ will throw down with Lina Lansberg on September 24th. The bout will headline the UFC Fight Night card, which will take place in Brasilia, Brazil. The fight will be contested at 140 pounds.

Lansberg (6-1) will be making her UFC debut at the event. The Swedish fighter has won six straight bouts.

So there you have it. Although the UFC still doesn’t have a 145 division for women, obviously they have every intention of keep “Cyborg” on the roster. Smart move.
